hehe hello. Strange request, but I'm flattered. I don't like galleries of stuff that people have seen before so I'm going to stick unfinisheds and unreleaseds here.



Just one of the many old 'getting back in the groove after an absence' pieces. 16 grays, pro motion.



Unfinished 5 colour work. Not anything great but I like palettes like these.



Never to be finished collab by myself and ptoing, long time ago.



This gives some insight to how I work.





Pics from an adventure game I was making at that res



This was released but I've always been fond of that one



...as of this one... 2003. Jesus, I haven't gotten much better since then...



This is a small animation for a remake of an appleII conan game I loved. Fell through due to lack of coders. This is missing a key stress frame, note.



...and this was the first map. Too dark, too plain. Not good enough, I can see now.



unfinished 'isometic' of my room. Hell to do, the palette isn't good enough and generally... too lazy to finish iso art. Iso's not for me.



One of the oldest sprite things I've ever done



Another old unreleased one, for an adventure game I didn't make...



I just love these types of palettes. For a game I never made...



with this guy in it...



another sprite for a game that proved to be much beyond my ability to code in game maker. I'd have made it otherwise, I was really pumped about it at the time.



those were tiles from it


well I better stop. I could go on forever

That was the idea. She'd strip, and then strip skin, muscle, bone and then the background would rip and you'd see binary and then a big 42 or something

The only sprite I remember seeing is the Ripley one. I don't think i've even seen half of these. OMG it makes me think back to the days when Pixelation wasn't even purple yet.

You really need to finish this one, Helm. It's damn sexy!
BTW, did you and ptoing ever get around to finishing your tile collaboration?

when pixelation goes back up, we will resume from where we left off.

yo helm - while i'm in the thread - i forgot to tell you "thank you" for a critique you gave me back in the days of the old purple pixelation.  It was that green ogre lizard creature i was making with a club.  Pixelation crashed just before i finished the piece.  You were the only one that realized that, design wise, the legs would benifit greatly by being shorter.  I didn't want to believe ya and i fought the idea, but i did it anyway. boy oh boy - i should listen to you more often.  :D  I'm not sure if you saw the finished peice though.

and since i dont really want to steal this thread in anyway, i'll just post em in URL's

Neat, you were the one that called me out for critique. You keep getting better. The piece is great, good saturation changes, generally, very solid. The texturing pleases me, and the centre of gravity problem is not as apparent. Good work. Don't worry about thread hijacking, as it's served it's original purpose :)

Heh, thx for coaxing Helm to post his work. Great stuff.

That was the idea. She'd strip, and then strip skin, muscle, bone and then the background would rip and you'd see binary and then a big 42 or something

I don't want to sound closeminded, but I think I'd like the other kind of strip poker.

Yes. The idea was to celebrate for the return of Pixelation by resuming it. If that takes too long and we get used to pixelopolis basically, I'll just talk with ptoing and we might resume it after he's done with the neat noko collab.
